Taylor Swift can be locked and loaded to chase Scooter Braun Sunday at AMA, but we knew he would talk to an empty seat because Scooter would be thousands of miles away.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ … Scooters are not afraid of what Taylor might do … in fact, he never planned to appear for the show. He will be in Tampa, Florida, supporting one of his artists who perform there … if you are not familiar, his name is Ariana Grande.
Like we first said … Scooters get death threat from loyal Taylor fans after their idol claims Scooters and other Big Machine honchos hostage their first 6 albums.
Our sources say Taylor – who won the award for Artist of the Decade – plans to weave his anger towards Scooter and Big Machine into his acceptance speech, but there will be no Scooter shortcut, and such deflates the balloon.
And, there is more intrigue … Ariana and Taylor are both nominated for Artist of the Year and Favorite Female Artist Pop / Rock at AMA. It would be interesting if Ariana wins because she is really in the corner of Scooter.
Speeches can be very entertaining.
